A CONCERNED mother wants to warn the public about a dangerous intersection before it "takes a life", after her son was involved in a serious collision.
Ann Wilkins' son James was travelling along Gladstone Street in Quarry Hill, when his vehicle collided with a car coming out of Abel Street earlier this year.
The 30-year-old escaped with only minor injuries but Ms Wilkins believes the next person involved in an accident at the spot might not be as lucky.
"I stood down there the other day for about 5-10 minutes and watched people - they take a quick look right and come out," she said.
"There was no warning for James, he was driving along Gladstone Street and was clipped on the rear passenger side (sending him into a fence).
"People are not slowing down enough."
Ms Wilkins said she wanted to bring the public's attention to the dangers of the intersection and warn them to be cautious during wet weather.
She said the give way sign on Abel Street should be replaced with a stop sign.
"There needs to be a stop sign or a roundabout, or something," she said.
"The lady that lives in the cream brick house opposite (the intersection) said when it rains there will be three to four accidents each time.
"She told us that she closes her blind because it gets so bad with numbers and (she doesn't want to watch the crashes).
"Something needs to be done."
